Having thick hair means I rarely style it as it takes too much time and effort. That being said, when it comes to dressing up for Christmas parties and special occasions I do make slightly more of an effort when it comes to styling my hair.  If like me you don't like spending more than an hour and a half getting ready for a party, then these are some simple and flattering hairstyles to wear for your next Christmas party. 

1. Retro waves. 

One of my favourite looks has to be retro waves as it looks so classy and quite effortless if you learn the technique properly with a curling wand or straightener. Pair it with a midi dress, pearls and a red lip and you'll look like you've come straight out of a Gatsby party.

2. Pin-Up curls.

Have you noticed a pattern here? I think this looks best if you've got short to mid length hair. My hair has grown a bit longer now so it doesn't quite have the same effect. Again this looks any party look look put together. To achieve this look use a thicker curling wand or grab large sections of hair with a straightener.

3. Fake it. 

The party season is all about making a bit more effort than you usually do isn't it? So it's a great way to experiment with different looks - whether that's going for something you usually don't do, wearing a wig or trying clip-in or flip-in hair extensions.

4. Low bun. 

I never used to wear my hair up, but since I got my balayage done it doesn't always look the best when I've had my hair up in a bun all day because of the colour contrast. So I just shift the bun downwards, pull the hair out from the sides a bit and there's your elegant low bun!
